The Life Cycle of Ideas : 1 of 3

#CreativityHacks #13

The Life Cycle of Ideas is a useful way of thinking about how ideas happen and are taken forward.

In the first case an ‘Idea Happens’.

From the pie diagram we can see that there are at least two ways of increasing the number of ‘Neat Ideas’:

1. Increase the total size of the pie – so that more ‘Ideas Happen’ and hopefully the proportion of Neat Ideas will increase proportionally

2. Increase the proportion of ideas which are ‘neat’

What ways can you think of of doing each of these?
